    Iron Maiden Poll: Piece of Mind vs. Somewhere in Time?

    I'm not an Iron Maiden aficionado, so I'm curious about fans' opinion. Where does Powerslave fit into this equation? Shouldn't that be in the poll? Is it not as popular as the others?

    Oingo Boingo

    I'm a fan. Especially the first three albums. Their Seattle concert in 1986 was one of my favorite shows ever.

    What are some of your favorite musical bridges?

    I'm not familiar with that one, but it does remind me of the funky breakdown in Tom Petty "American Girl." I suppose that counts as a bridge.

    What are some of your favorite musical bridges?

    EWF - Fantasy is an interesting one. In the single version, it goes to the bridge and doesn't come back. For the album version, they go to the bridge once, then tease a bit of the intro & verse at 2:26, but jarringly jump right back into the bridge and stay there. Single: Album track:

    Is the name "Lilac" a reference to a Dio lyric?

    21st Century Schizoid Man

    Somewhere I have a KC DVD that allows you to mix and match various live parts of the song from different incarnations of the band. For example, you can listen to the Larks' Tongues-era rhythm section with Adrian Belew singing from the Discipline-era. Something like that, anyway.

    I hope FedEx reads their shipment "Nicknames"

    Haha, yeah... I'm sure they won't see that. I've been through this twice lately with Fedex. Both times, I called and they put a trace on the packages. Items showed up the following day.
